I think I speak for hundreds of people out here. I've followed Povray for ever
and am very disappointed by the lack of interest shown. As for Moray, I used it
from it's Dos days and abandoned 3d Max in favour of it.
What a shame no-one has worked on it. Surely the source code is available to
some-one. Look at the Blender community or Gimp or Krita. What happened to the
Povray enthusiasts.
Come on all you bright young coders. Get your teeth into something useful
exciting and free.
